MET GALA 2014 – Best Dressed

I could not let such an important event pass by without stating my opinion. It is after all the most important Event in fashion history and this years theme Charles James: Beyond Fashion and there was a mention of “decorations”. Charles James was an amazing designer back in the day, he was one of the firsts to design hot couture garments which were very dramatic, feminine and yet classy.  Let’s start with the best dressed of the night,  they are in no particular order so go ahead and pick your favorite.


Beyonce wore this beautiful shimmery and sheer black gown by Givenchy. What makes this dress unique is the fabric, it is simply devine, I personally didn’t like the peplum but other than than it is simply fantastic.

Kim Kardashian

Finally Kim got it right in this beautiful blue and black Lanvin dress. Last year it was a disaster with that floral hilarious gown, so this year she definitely made up for it.  It truly hugged her curves in the write places without looking slutty. So well done Kim.

What happened in that limo ride? Kim Kardashian switched out her shoes and belt as she lost the leather cuffs en route to the Met Gala

Blake Lively

This Gucci dress on Blake’s Lively immaculate body looked exceptional. She looked like a true Hollywood star, the dress hair and make up screamed Hollywood. The dress hugs her beautiful body in all the right places that makes me insanely jealous of her. 😛

I don’t usually like what Rihanna wears but she definitely looked fabulous in this white Stella McCarthney dress. It highlights her caramel tones torso while still being elegant and chic.

Rihanna's sweeping statement gown featured a bold cut out which showed off her enviable stomach, but maintained an elegant overall look with long sleeves and an embellished high neck

Cara Delevigne

Cara is a young and vibrant model, so I wouldn’t have imagined anyone else to pull off this look. The outfit is also by Stella McCarthney and even though I wouldn’t have imagined it for the MET gala, with her body and well done hair and some nice jewelry she truly pulled it off.

Giselle Bunchen

I am in love with lace, so of course this Balenciaga dress is definitely one of my favorites. I think black on a light complexion looks flawless and sexy, so thumps up Giselle.

 Amber Heard

This Giambattista Valli dess looked gorgous on Amber, I do think she looked a bit pale with this dress but I can’t deny that it fits her to perfection.

Amber Heard looked stunning in a Giambattista Valli dress with Fred Leighton jewellery on the arm of fiance  Johnny Depp who jazzed up his Ralph Lauren tux with a cane and golden pocket watch

There were many beautiful dress but these are the dresses that truly caught my attention. I will do another quick post of my least favorites and that shall be hilarious :P, so keep posted guys 🙂

Would love your opinion of what is your favorite dress




Versace Spring Collection 2014 – Black, Lace and Rock and Roll

Recently I have become utterly obsessed with what’s new in the fashion world. I feel like a young kid again, looking at the beautiful gowns that I clearly couldn’t and still can’t afford, and steal some of the other designer idea and create outfits myself. Being an interior and product designer myself, I always looked at fashion as a beautiful way to express your inner self. One of my favourite designer has to be Versace, I simply love their elegant way of dressing, feminine but still edgy.

This spring their collection revolves around the black colour, laced fabric with a rock and roll attitude. There are also a bit of colour blocking with the use of flower patterns and even edgy designs. What I love about Versace also is how their designed are are form fitting, extenuating every womanly curve.

Rock and Roll:

Emerald Inceptions – Handmade Jewellery by Marcon

Things are certainly progressing both in fashion and in Jewelry design here in Malta. I am seeing a lot of entrepreneurial women out there that are starting to make a new of their own, one of them is Marcon Caruana. Me and Marcon have been knowing each other for a long time but little did I know she had such a talent for jewellery making.


I met this lovely lady last week, as she was exhibiting her work at the Gorygoth Malta shop. By spending a few hours with her, i could see how much passion she has for designing, and how much she loves doing it. They are a part of which is why she gives each item a story, that will someday be part of someone else.

I had to opportunity to ask her further about Emerald Inceptions, check them out:

1.How did Emerald Inceptions start?

Working on crafts has been my passion from when I was a tiny tot. I started with cards for different occasions, and even home accessories. My creativity comes from my parents. My mother was a seamstress, and my father was a carpenter.

Like most girls, I also like fashion, clothing, and shoes. Sometimes, because I did not find what I had in mind or wanted, I would look for things that I have at home (a broken necklace or pieces of watches) and then create a necklace or bracelet from them.The initiative to start my small business started when my fiancé and my family saw some of the things that I had done. So they encouraged me to try, and that’s what I did!

 2.What was the main reason you started designing jewellery?

 I have always had a passion for jewellery, especially earrings! My own collection of earrings from around the world is over 350 pairs, it was an obvious choice. Now I mainly focus on large statement couture necklaces.

3.Have you ever had any training to develop you skill?

If I see something I like, I need to understand how it’s done, first and foremost in my head, then once I understand the theory, I can work with tools and different materials, think outside the box and make what I see. I watch videos on the internet and have bought a lot of books that have helped me with what I do. What I know I learnt on my own, if there was a chance for me to take a course locally I would.

4.From where do you get your inspiration?

My main inspiration is derived from a beautiful time that has gone by – the Victoria Era. I mix the style of that age, with similar modern styles, namely Steampunk and Goth.I also get a lot of Inspiration from nature, especially the sea, classic literature, British Shabby Chic gusto and French Vintage glam.

5.Do you sketch your design before you start working on a piece or you are driven by the instant?

 Most of the time I see the design in my head, rather than sketch it, I grab as many wire or beads as I can and lay it out. This allows me to visualize it first.

6.What is your favorite piece of jewellery that you ever created?

Really depends on my mood. My favorite piece is called ‘Cronos Concubinus’ (yes most of my creations have names to explain the story). This two focal necklace, has the most antique clock part pieces I ever laid my hands on, plus a few more.

I created this haute couture necklace, using very rare trinkets, original antiques, such as the tip of a fountain pen from the 1900’s, two steam watch machines pre-WW1, brass and antiqued bronze charms. The chain work is all handmade, comprising of oval loops and the other strand is tiny propeller style links. The beads used for the center strand of the necklace are mostly light grey jade glass and the center bead is black diamond colour with AB colour Czech polished and multifaceted, super pretty when they catch the light.

The story behind it is that the God of Time (Cronos in Latin) had a lover (Concubinus in Latin) – that is why two focal – and the couple, even though two individuals, create a beautiful harmony together which is this couture one of a kind necklace.

7.It is common that most designers develop a certain bond with their designs; do you find it hard to sell a piece of jewellery that you have worked so hard on?

Yes!!! I cried and was shaking when I sold my previous favourite items. It is so emotional for me to find a buyer for my pieces, because we instantly connect. Knowing that there is another person out there that understands and loves your creation is a beautiful experience for which I am very thankful for and motivates me.

8.What is the future for Emerald Inceptions?

Keeping a constant progress to me is very important. Staying in touch with my current clients and understanding the potential for future ones takes time. I am now more determined to create more awareness about mixed media art jewellery and continue to spread the word about Steampunk locally.

However in the next few months a massive change will happen to EI which I cannot reveal for now 😉 But it will be amazing!

I can’t wait to hear the good news for Emerald Inceptions :). Btw watch this lovely braclet I got and some pictures of the display and work by Marcon:




Mini Accessories Haul

Hi guys,

So about a month or two ago, I really needed some retail therapy so I bought a couple of items from various websites online. I have been craving for a couple of handbags and I have been loving these designer smile bags. They can vary in pricing at it depends if they are real leather or not and even which colour you choose. I thought of treating myself for the real deal. I was initially going to it all in black but then the smile wouldn’t be visible, so I opted for the black and white one.


I am absolutely in love with this handbag, might buy another one in a different colour as it is super cute. It is quite a heavy bag and can by tiring if you wear it on your wrist for a long time. However comes with a nice long strap which can give you a different option of how to hold this handbag. I also love that is has these metal studs at the bottom of the bag which can keep it from getting dirty, if you leave it on the floor.

I also got this lovely summer handbag for a cheap price on e-bay, I use it currently for work because it quite spacious and very light to carry. It’s perfect for summer, as I like to carry light objects.

When it comes to jewelry, I have been seeing women wearing necklaces with their name tag which were very popular in the 90’s. The 90’s has definitely come back in 20th century. I managed to find the sterling silver necklace with my name on it and I bought it from ebay. I really like it, and many commented on how cute it looks.


Well that is all for now guys, keep posted as I have some interesting new make-up look coming up and more reviews for you guys, so keep posted :D.




Shine On- Award

Hey guys,

So this week I was nominated by the lovely Mammu from Mammu Likes. Do check her out, she is an Estonian Beauty with a sense of style and fashion tips. Thank you so much for this Award, it means I am doing something right with this blog 🙂

Basically I have to mention 7 things about myself an nominated others for this award. Well I do hope I don’t bore you to that, so here we go:

1. Well something that people don’t think when they see me, is that I was quite a tomboy when I was a kid. I used to hang out with boys, play football and had even my cut out short. I was a carefree child and didn’t care what people said about me.

2. Nowadays I still keep that tomboyish side of me when it comes to handy work. I am quite a handy person, if there something that needs fixing, I just find a way to do it. I painted my room on my own and decorated it by myself and maybe with a little help from relatives.

3. I am quite good when it comes to building things with wood. At the institute of Art and Design we had an opportunity to try a particular workshop and i chose the wood workshop.  I carved wood, used the wood turning, created a lot of designs using wood and I love it.  I learned a lot when I was working with wood which actually helps a lot when it comes to my  job as a designer in office furniture.

4. Apart from my manly side, when I was younger I used to love designing clothes. I had a bunch of sketchbooks full of designs. I used to love watching the runway shows, with my sketchbook in my hands and drawing different outfit ideas that were probably fashionable at that time.

5. When I was a student I couldn’t afford buying new clothes, I had to go by with what I had. So I used to modify my clothes, so they always looked fashionable. I would create outfits out of nothing and when I went out I made sure I always looked good. I remember once I was given an ugly dress, and with the help of my mother which used to be a seamstress, changed it into this completely different and gorgeous dress.

6. To some extent blogging is my therapy. I love blogging because it reminds me to always enjoy the thing you have in your life 🙂 to always take care of yourself and be beautiful.

7. Some of you may know this already by I have another blog called “Work in Progress” which is about my weight loss journey. If you would like, you can check it out here.

So here are my Nominees in no particular order:












That is all for now 🙂 keep posted
